Dear Mrs. Benda:

The Division of Radio and Television has completed the production of the series, "TV and the Classroom Teacher," with the exception of the final evaluation and review. To complete the process we are assembling a committee of educators, administrators, and television personnel to review the course and evaluate it. This evaluating committee will meet at the studios of WEDU, 908 South 20th Street, Tampa, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Friday, October 30. We should complete our evaluative process by 5:00 p.m. Friday.

We would like to invite you to become a member of this committee. We would appreciate hearing from you as soon as is convenient whether or not you can join us.

If you can join us, we will pay your travel and per diem. If you plan to travel by common carrier, please let us know so that we can send you a TR form to buy your ticket. This is a state requirement. Thank you.

Sincerely,

General Note

As a teenager Nancy was one of the first mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs, a job which earned her a trip to Hollywood to double for Ann Blythe in swimming parts for the 1948 movie "Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid". In 1966 Nancy starred in "Miss Nancy's Store" produced by WFSU. The show, one of the earliest children's television shows, later ended in August of 1967 due to lack of funds and Nancy went to work for the Florida Department of Education until she retired.
